Something Different Saturday

Happy Saturday All!

Something different is back with, you guessed it, a Box!  Today I am presenting a Hexagonal gift box.

This box is made using Acetate, PMD Cream card and an X-Cut Hexagonal die (one of my new purchases on my recent U.K. Buying trip).

The bottom is solid with the acetate sides attached however the lid is removable, hence the ribbon handle.  As with all my prototypes this is decorated quite simply with ribbon and a gift tag stamping with stamps from Creative expressions in beige and charcoal.  I am hoping to have something a little more decorative for the tutorial on Tuesday.  AS I am sure you are aware by now to create the tutorial I have to backwards engineer the box to get the measurements and work out how best to describe the workings.

For now I hope you like me new box, Enjoy...


  1. Hi John,
    Fabulous box, you are very clever.

  6. Great idea, John, and I can cheat, as I have a Cameo that could cut this for me. I'd never thought of acetate for box sides, but yours works so well, I can imagine all sorts of things which would look good in it.

  7. Hi John, this box is amazing, you are so clever.Looking forward to your tutorial, but doubt if mine will look so good.
    Enjoy your weekend, Maggie x

    PS i got my order made at PMD it certainly is a lot cheaper than my craft shop and the TV channel i usually use .x
